As a surprising turn of event, Vaakanainen has made one-year contract with SaiPa. There were rumours about him making new contract with JYP before (and even before that rumours about moving to FÃ¶lunda) but he decided otherwise. This is a really good move for him. He should be able to get a lot more time on ice in SaiPa (maybe even in first pair). Vaakanainen has also mutual history with SaiPa's new head coach Tero LehterÃ¤ from the last two seasons he spent with Blues.
